Wisdom Supporting Liberty

Wisdom Supporting Liberty

I came across this sculpture by Jules Dalou at 3 Ring Binder and could not resist sharing it.

Liberty can not stand alone. We truly need Wisdom, that pinnacle of consistent rationality, to understand the coexisting values and principles necessary for the preservation of Liberty, indeed of Life itself. Without those principles (which include an absolute respect for the triumvirate of individual rights–life, liberty, property) and the application of reason to both identify and defend them, Liberty will be unable to withstand the multitude of assaults aimed against her, and eventually will succumb in exhaustion.

To be effective, our eternal vigilence must be wisely defended.
